WAEMU celebrates its 25th anniversary this Thursday  

(Togo First) - On Thursday, January 10, 2019, the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) will celebrate its 25th anniversary at its headquarters, in Ouagadougou.

The official celebration ceremony will take place at the Centre International de Conférences de Ouaga 2000, in the presence of Ivorian president, Alassane Dramane Ouattara, also president of the WAEMU’s Heads of State and Governments Conference. Burkina Faso’s president, Roch Marc Christian Kaboré, will also attend the ceremony.

The event’s theme is “Achieving free movement of goods and people together”.

The anniversary will be the opportunity to review progress made towards achieving this objective and overcoming challenges that impede its realization. On the ceremony’s sidelines, officials present will inaugurate the new administrative complex of the institution in the Burkinabe capital.

The WAEMU regroups the eight West African countries that have in common the CFA. These are Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea Bissau (since May 2, 1997), Mali, Niger, Senegal and Togo.
